& park department to erect a building. mrs. gallagher. >> you have seven minutes. >> i have information that i should address to the board. there is an ongoing consideration of document that i requested. i have developed quite a reputation with rec & park department for asking for everything, including the kitchen sink. i have not received documents. at this point in time i do not have any, any daily inspection reports relevant to the work in the park since august 28. despite i have asked for it in writing repeatedly. and most recently i asked for it on october 15. here is my e-mail to the person i was told to address these requests to. there are additional things i have not received. i have asked for information since june. and i wrote explaining why i want the financials. there are a lot of questions related to this permit without understanding the context. i don't think that we can adequately address these concerns. one example there were limited reports provided to me yesterday in response to my earlier requests. this is one of them. it's showing that all kinds of inspections were d
. >> i concur. >> so we'll hear the motion, miss gallagher, you can come back and you have seven minutes to present your case. >> the there are a number of people here including president hwang and the people you previously referred to my opponents and my so-called opponents sent a letter that was not reviewed because it did not get into the files along with several other letters from people regarding this permit appeal from some sort of administrative mix up that happened at the board of appeals office or some other way. in any event they provided copies of letters in which the pacific heights resident association says they are sore sorry they are not able to be here tonight and to deny the permit and upheld my appeal because of their concerns related to the work at the summit, as well as to the maintenance and container sheds and those are my opponents of it's election time as well and there is another bond up for consideration and i think it's a good time for to us ask what exactly is going on with this permit? there is another permit that has not yet been issued that will need to b
public comment? >> hi. i would like to make a couple of comments. the fact that miss gallagher brings to your attention are to bring to the attention not very high-quality done there by the department of parks and recreation planning this project. and the fact that the permits were not fileded and obtained prior to construction, and which delayed the construction should not be blamed miss gallagher, but clearly somebody else's oversight. and recently i have learned that the construction includes building of a green waste area. and and to have this green waste area located in the middle of the park on the summit, seems to be very, very poor choice and poor decision, and to allow the dump trucks basically to be able to drive through the park across the park to get to this green waste area also seems to be very, very poor planning. having a plaza park a few blocks away would not increase driving and this park already has an area that is used for green waste. and it's nicely blocked with trees, and would not be as obtruive. the with i think the overall quality of the project management i
